Yippee! At long last, it’s December 3rd—release day for HOW THE GLITCH SAVED CHRISTMAS and A GALACTIC HOLIDAY! This is the day I’ve been waiting for since May 10th, 2012—the day I got “The Call” from the editor of this project, Angela James.
How did that call go, exactly? Um… Let me set the background first. Earlier in the year (April 13th, to be exact), I was in Chicago for business, doing the everyday job at a figure skating competition. RT Con was also taking place AT THAT TIME, and IN THAT CITY. Whoa, right? Talk about stars aligning!
Since this was the coincidence of the century, I let Carina Press know that while I wasn’t attending RT, I’d be in town. I was thrilled when I got an invitation to a Carina Press “Authors Only” cocktail party, and that’s where I got to meet so many fabulous people who are also incredibly talented writers. This is also where I met Angela James, and the first thing I noticed about her were her smexy Queen of Hearts shoes. Seriously y’all, this chick has earned her shoe rep honestly. I’m still suffering pangs of shoe envy. :P
After some mingling and shop talk with everyone—and my first chocolate martini where I discovered there are some alcoholic beverages I really like—I got my sleeve tugged on by Angela, who said she needed to talk to me before I left. Had she noticed I was tonguing out the chocolate syrup left in the martini glass? (Yeah, that’s me, Ms. Elegant *snort*) But of course, in the back of my mind was the list of manuscripts I’d already sent to her. One had been there since November, one in December, and a couple more, including GLITCH, since March. I knew she couldn’t tell me anything about GLITCH, as it was an open-sub call that had a specific time when all entrants would be notified. But the others…
We moved to the front of the restaurant, and she smiled casually while I was dying inside. Maybe she really was about to yell at me for tonguing the chocolate. Oh God, did I have a ring of chocolate around my mouth…?
“Soooooooooo…We would like to acquire all three of the manuscripts you sent us. Is that all right?”
And did I mention one of my books is releasing today? WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! *streaks*
